To be able to rapidly switch from one view to another, many customers choose to open multiple instances of ShiftWorx, with:
- WatchLive showing a group of machines of interest
- Narrative showing a specific machine of interest
The examples to the left shows that 2 instances of ShiftWorx are running, with the WatchLive instance in one tab, and narrative in the other. This is the view that would be typically on the floor for everyone in that area to see.
In the example, only 2 of the machines are active this particular day. If a supervisor or manager wants a quick view of down time reasons for these two machines, they need only click the Narrative ShiftWorx instance on the browser bar. In the example to the left, the second instance of ShiftWorx is set to the Narrative module showing the activity of machine 20 and 24.
Having 2 instances running eliminates the need to go back to Dashboard to change between the WatchLive view and the Narrative view.
